Oranges + Cloves

Something I love to do during the Thanksgiving/Christmas season:

Do you do this?
Do you get poked by the cloves while you're pushing them into the orange rind like I do?
Do you think the smell is amazing and completely worth a little bit of pain?

Mmmm. I simmer them in cider, delish! Don't recall getting poked too badly. Definitely worth it :)

I must live in the wrong area of the US because I have no idea what this is....It looks neat! Please, inform my ignorant self!

I have never done that. Do you do it for decorations or for cooking? I have only cooked with cloves... intrigued.

Alicia - it's for decor and (mostly) the smell! So delish. It's really easy, just push some cloves into an orange and there you have it!
